Michael Kopech (elbow) plays catch Wednesday

Michael Kopech (elbow) played catch on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

The 22-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery in September and is expected to be out until the 2020 season. Despite the injury MLB Pipeline recently ranked him as the 18th best prospect in baseball.

Michael Kopech has UCL damage and will need surgery

Michael Kopech has UCL damage according to the team and Tommy John surgery is being recommended. He's expected to be ready for Spring Training in 2020.

Fantasy Impact

This is the worst news for both the White Sox and the young pitcher. His velocity was recently down and with the timing of the injury, his fantasy value takes a significant hit as he'll miss all of 2019. Pitchers have returned from Tommy John successfully so this isn't a career-ender, but it's certainly not the start most hoped for from the top pitching prospect.

Michael Kopech gives up seven runs on Wednesday

Michael Kopech was hit for seven runs on Wednesday against the Tigers. Kopech lasted just 3 1/3 innings, gave up nine hits (four home runs), one walk and struck out six.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech now has an ERA of 5.02 through four starts with 1.53 WHIP. He has no fantasy value at this time.

Michael Kopech pitches well in rain-shortened start

Michael Kopech allowed one hit and one walk over three scoreless innings against the Red Sox on Friday. He struck out one and did not factor into the decision.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech was removed from the game after a lengthy rain delay, but that doesn't take away from how effective he was against one of baseball's best lineups. He'll look to keep up the excellent start to his career against the Tigers in his next start.

Michael Kopech earns first MLB victory

Michael Kopech pitched six strong innings and held the Tigers to one run in Sunday's win.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech threw 86 pitches and struck out four. He allowed seven hits, but didn't walk anyone. After his previous start was cut short because of a rain delay, Kopech got the opportunity to show what he could do. He has not been a disappointment and should be started with confidence once again later this week.
